Concrete sealing and tracking dust in the house

I recently sealed my back patio because I read that sealing should prevent tracking concrete dust into the house. We have a darker color hardwood floor and after being out on the patio you would see the footprints of concrete dust at the back door, no matter how much you cleaned the patio or wiped your feet. So I sealed the patio with a good non-glossy sealer. It repels all water, which is kind of weird given the water just sits on top of the concrete until you brush it off. But now we still get concrete dust in the house. It's better than before, but did we do something wrong? Is it impossible to totally eliminate concrete dust?

Concrete is only one source of dust. You are probably tracking in regular, environmental dust & pollen.

Cant say that I have ever noticed concrete dust being tracked in, if it's that noticeable something must be going on with the concrete that it is breaking down, sealing would be my fist recommendation, as well as rugs at the doors.

What type of sealer did you use!
